Quite the opposite. In fact, most cross OS sharing issues are due to the user not setting up the network or local accounts properly. If the drives are shared, the PCs are in the same workgroup, you use the same user account and passwords on each system, and file sharing is enabled, you'll have no problem connecting by UNC path, aka \\computername\sharename
. People usually skip one of those steps.
Windows 7 introduced HomeGroups which make the networking much easier in term of a single home network.
Speaking of...if you only plan to connect to the HTPC from within your network, RDP works better than logmein.
